j. pierce Posted April 1, 2007 Report Share Posted April 1, 2007 (Links to the Allparts UK site, since I can't get allparts.com to load right now, but the part numbers and descriptions and pictures are the same) http://www.allparts.uk.com/catalogue/produ...oducts_id=11616 http://www.allparts.uk.com/catalogue/produ...oducts_id=11615 The set of used Gibson bass pickups I was going to purchase fell through - so I'm thinking of purchasing these. The Allparts site doesn't mention the manufacturer. I've had experiences in the past, where cheaper, unknown manufacturer repros off slightly more less conventional vintage pickups where simply "normal" pickups under an appropriately sized cover. (A set of jazzmaster pickups that were basically Strat pickups under the cover) I find that less likely to be the case here, since the Gibson bass pickups have that weird string spacing going on, but I thought I'd ask in case anyone else has used them. They don't need to be spot-on copies of the originals, as there's going to be enough different things about this instrument that it won't sound the same as an EB-3 anyway, but I'd kind of like whatever makes those pickups sound the way they do to be present in some fashion. From the photos I've seen, I'd imagine it's the unique layout/construction/size of the windings. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
